A Sad Accident
A report reaches us, and we have good reason to believe it true, that
Thomas Hickle, an attorney residing at Richardson, was cleaning a Winchester
rifle one day last week and while thus engaged the gun was accidentally
discharged, killing his little boy almost instantly.
Mr. Hickle is a very affectionate father and is almost demented with
grief since the unfortunate accident.
